Cynthia McKinney, Green Party presidential candidate, spoke in Portland, Oregon, November 12, 2007, for a fund raising event at the Portland First Unitarian Church.
Cynthia spoke for about 10 minutes and then answering questions for about another 40 minutes.
From the website, "All Things Cynthia McKinney"
"McKinney, a former Democrat from Georgia, was one of only three members of Congress to vote "yes" on a House Resolution in 2005 calling for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. One of her last acts in office was introducing Articles of Impeachment naming George Bush, Dick Cheney and Condoleezza Rice."
"According to McKinney: "It is time to break the vicious cycle where the poor go to war and veterans come home wounded and ignored.""
Her answers were to the point; no dodging, hedging or dancing around the issues. Refreshing.
